Hey all-

Welcome to my blog. The fine folks at the BeyeNETWORK™ have provided me with this forum to offer opinion and insight into the worlds of telcommunications (telecom) and business activity monitoring (BAM). But as with any blog, I am sure that we (yes we... since blogging is a "team sport"...) will explore other tangents that intersect the concepts of telecom and BAM.

In this world of "Crossfire" intellectual engagement (i.e. I yell louder therefore I win the argument), I will try to offer my opinion in a constructive manner. If I truly dislike a concept, I will do my best to offer an alternative as opposed to simply attempting to prove my point by disproving someone else's. I ask that people who post to this blog follow in my lead.

Let the games begin....

Back at the Telematics Update 2011 show in Detroit.  Just left a presentation from Ericsson and Cybercom on making the car social via telematics.

The packed room heard how Ericsson and Cybercom are attempting to bridge the gap between the telecom industry and the auto/telematics industry. It appears that the telematics/auto industry is attempting to re-invent the wheel (pardon the pun) that Apple and Google have been building quite effectively recently.

In particular, Apple's recent iCloud announcement seems to put many of the content delivery aspects of the telematics industry to rest....or at least in my humble opinion.

There are still significant issues associated with distracted driving and bandwidth to deliver this content. However, these are issues that auto industry appears to be tackling with vigor and great interest.

What do you think of iCloud as an infotainment platform?

Can a car truly be a social platform?
